Hello to anyone reading this! :) I'm working on a project with my team mates on motion-sensing using an accelerometer (ADXL335). Basically, we are making a motion-sensing game controller (the Arduino Uno board) and a game (the brick game developed using Processing application) connected to a laptop via a USB cable.
For the game controller, we are using the Arduino Uno board, with a prototyping shield placed on top of it, and the components on the prototyping shield itself. So far, we managed to develop the brick game and our game controller works too. Even though our game controller works, it doesn't really move according to our motion. For example, when i move it to the right, it is supposed to stay put right? It doesn't stay, it returns to the middle again, to its original position. Pretty much, the [u]accuracy[/u] is the problem here.
My team mate said it might be because of our X, Y and Z values. We just used the codes provided in the software when we downloaded it. We didn't edit anything. Are we supposed to change the 3 values in the code? [u]Here's the link to what she saw @ 02:07 mins:[/u] http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rOUBr6Nmzec
And this link will lead you to my Google+ account with photos of our project: https://plus.google.com/u/0/b/114499179677684573641/114499179677684573641/posts
Hopefully someone can help us, we would be very grateful for your help :)
